My specialties include treating depression , anxiety, traumas, life transitions as well as grief and loss.
I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Over the past two decades as a therapist, I have witnessed the transformative power of therapy. The key ingredients are often the collaboration and connection in the therapeutic relationship as well as the willingness of clients to consider novel ideas and possibilities for their lives and then try out new behaviors/coping skills. I work well with adults of all ages, older teens, couples and even families, when it is helpful to include a larger system to discuss problems, consider changes or improve communication.

I see clients for depression , anxiety, pain, insomnia, loss, and stress related to health and the healthcare system.
When we are struggling with emotional or physical pain, hope can be tough to come by. If you are considering psychotherapy, there is good reason to be hopeful. As an evidence-based clinical health psychologist, I feel fortunate to practice at a time when the science behind psychotherapy is in full bloom. I am particularly passionate about mind-body approaches that combine modern cognitive and behavioral therapies with the wisdom that ancient contemplative practices have to offer.

Life events such as getting married or divorced; becoming a new parent or an empty nester; starting a new career or retiring all signal a process of change and transition. For some people, such change can create a sense of excitement and anticipation while for others great anxiety, fear and stress. The loss of a loved one is a change that often brings feelings of deep grief and depression . Furthermore, we are navigating massive changes occurring in our society and in the world that have impacted the way we live, work and socialize. The resulting stress and anxiety is at an all time high.

I enjoy working with teens and adults. I see couples and families, helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed , or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

Through dialogue and/or play, we develop innovative and creative strategies to help with self-regulation. For adult clients, through developing understanding of ADHD, depression and/or anxiety, I help clients make changes in their thoughts, feelings, and actions that lead to alleviation and reduction of symptoms.

My specialties are in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity disorders, depression and anxiety disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Because no two patients are alike, therapy should be tailored to each patient, rather than trying to treat everyone with the same theoretical approach. I believe that a therapist’s job is to guide the patient as they learn to change the behaviors and thinking styles that may have once been helpful, but are now getting in their way. Most importantly, I believe it is a therapist's job to teach their patients the skills necessary to eventually function independent of their therapist, allowing them to eventually leave therapy instead of being stuck with having weekly sessions for the rest of their lives!

Adversity, while a common experience, is not easy to navigate. Due to ongoing problems, life transitions, or acute events you might feel anxious, depressed or distressed. Experiencing isolation, distraction, sadness, changes in appetite, sleeplessness, irritability, worry, and/or other changes can take a toll on different areas of life. Relationships might be the source of your problems or are being negatively impacted by your stress. Our work together will improve how you feel, increase understanding of yourself, and identify long-term solutions.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Silver Spring. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
